There’s a new ship in town folks. . .and she’s a beauty! MSC Seaside is making her debut in Miami this December offering vacationers an additional option when cruising the Caribbean from south Florida.
December 2017 brings the MSC Seaside to Port Miami amidst much hoopla and gala events. The official lineup for the launch and Naming Ceremony on December 21st is no less than stellar! MSC welcomes guests that span the likes of global media and Miami authorities as well as partners from the travel industry, celebrities and folks from the entertainment world. Here’s a sneak peek at who is in the lineup!
International superstar Ricky Martin is the headliner and will perform some of his popular hits. Martin is known for putting Latin music on the map as they say. He is a spectacular performer and has recorded in many languages. Martin encompasses the international spirit of MSC Cruises and the port city of Miami.
World-famous tenor, Andrea Bocelli, will delight fans with his classical performance. Traveling all over the world, Bocelli has performed for four U.S. presidents, three Popes, the British Royal Family and many Prime Ministers.
Miami is known for many things including football, so it’s only fitting that the city’s football legend and Hall of Fame QB, Dan Marino, make a guest appearance. Marino played for the Dolphins for some 17 years. MSC Cruises have a partnership with the Miami Dolphins becoming the official cruise line for the team. Fans will have the opportunity to experience the team at sea and meet various alumni from the Dolphins on a themed cruise aboard MSC Seaside in 2018.
Master of Ceremonies will be the actor and popular American TV host, Mario Lopez. Welcoming guests to the festivities on MSC’s “Blue Carpet,” where there will be celebrity interviews, photographs and meet and greets, Lopez will then host the entertainment portion of the evening.
